Time to try a witch’s brew…
The Baba Yaga questline is, like the IO Heist, one of the first punchcard questlines released in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
To begin this challenge set, you must first visit Baba Yaga’s location and talk to her. You’ll eventually find yourself tracking down a mending machine’s location, so you can complete one of the quests.
Completing this quest punch card will reward you with a total of 80k XP, which will help you collect more Battle Stars for the Season 8 Battle Pass.

Baba Yaga questline and location in Fortnite explained
To start Baba Yaga’s questline in Fortnite you need to talk to the woman herself in-game. She lives in the hut next to the former IO base located in the far south-westerly corner of the island and near to Sludgy Swamp.
Once you’ve found her, select the exclamation mark when talking to her. With this done, you’ll be able to complete her quests and won’t lose your progress if you have to leave a match or are eliminated.
Below you can find every challenge, along with how much XP you’ll receive, for Baba Yaga’ challenges:
- Mark a Medkit, a Bandage and a Small Shield Potion – 12k XP
- Use any of the services of a Mending Machine – 14k XP
- Consume foraged items – 16k XP
- Restore health with fish – 18k XP
- Use a Bandage or a Medkit in The Sideways – 20k XP
Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella!
Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.
Mending machine locations in Fortnite explained
Mending machines are a type of vending machine which you can find across the Fortnite map and, as the name suggests, sells items which will allow you to restore your health or shield.
You will need to gather some Gold Bars – we recommend roughly 100 Gold Bars to be safe – before attempting this challenge or you won’t be able to purchase anything.
The easiest way to find a mending machine is to visit a petrol station, because every single one has a mending machine on the premises. Once you’re there, look for a vending machine with a blue screen and that’s your mending machine!
When you’re nearby a small icon should also appear on the mini-map to indicate where the mending machine is.
Here are some of the location where you can find a mending machine in Fortnite:
Feel free to visit whichever mending machine you prefer! Though, we recommend the one north of Sludgy Swamp if you’ve managed to complete the first stage of this questline in one match, because it should be quite close by.
